Using the Oven as a Fan Oven

Since a circulaire fan oven heats up more quickly and generally cooks food at a lower temperature than a conventional oven, pre-heatingis often unnecessary. For guides on“pre-heating”,“cooking temperatures” and “cooking times” see “Oven Temperature Charts” later in book.

Note: Charts are a guide only, to suit personal taste and requirements, it may be necessary to increase or decrease temperatures by 10oC. It may also be necessary to increase or decrease cooking times.

OVEN SHELF POSITIONING FOR FAN OVEN

Most foods will cook satisfactorily on any shelf position, due to even distribution of heat in the main oven, but the shelves must be evenly spaced.

Food or utensils should never be placed directly on the floor of the oven for cooking.

DO NOT allow young children near to the appliance when the main oven is in use as the surfaces get extremely hot.

OVEN UTENSILS

Do Not Use:

Meat Pans larger than

375mm x 300mm (15”x12”)

 

Baking Trays larger than

325mm x 250mm (13”x10”)

An additional oven shelf can be purchased, from our Parts Department or your nearest retailer, if a third one is required for batch baking. Never use more than three shelves in the oven at one time as air circulation will be restricted.

TEMPERATURE & TIME

If all three shelves are in use to cook large quantities of food, it may be necesssary to increase the cooking times given in the temperature charts by a few

minutes, to allow for the loss of heat due to extra time taken to load the oven, and the larger mass of food. Baking trays should have an even gap around the oven.

FAN OVEN OPERATION

B MAIN OVEN TEMPERATURE & FUNCTION CONTROL

OVEN PILOT LIGHT

 

CLOCK / MINUTE MINDER

Step 1 Place the shelf/shelves in the correct position (see Oven Temperature Charts). Step 2 Place the food centrally on the shelf ensuring the oven door is fully closed.

Step 3 Select the required cooking temperature (80 to 230oC) by turning control (B) clockwise. The pilot light will immediately come on, and remain on until the

oven reaches the required temperature. The light will then automatically go off and on during cooking as the oven thermostat maintains the correct temperature.

Note: When you have finished using your cooker, always return the controls to their OFF (O) position. At the end of the cooking period there may be a momentary puff of steam when the door is opened. This will disperse in a few seconds and is a perfectly normal characteristic of an oven with a good door seal.

Using the Oven for other Functions

Fan Fan Only Setting

Defrosting frozen meat and poultry

Joints of meat and whole birds should be defrosted slowly, preferably in a refrigerator (allowing 5-6hours per lb.) or at room temperature (allowing2-3hours per lb.).

Frozen meat or poultry must be completely defrosted before cooking in the oven.

However, to decrease the amount of time required to defrost food items, a nonheating fan only setting may be selected for the main oven only.

Operation: To assist in defrosting

Place food in the oven and close the oven door.

Turn the Oven Temperature and Function Control (B) clockwise to the

Fan setting.

Only

This defrosts by circulating the air around the food, time to defrost will depend on type and size of the food.

NOTES: DO NOT defrost meat and poultry by warming the food through.

Foods ideally suited to defrosting using the fan only setting are cream/cream cakes, butter cream filled cakes, gateaux, cheese cakes, iced cakes, quiches, pastries, biscuits, bread, croissants, fruit and many delicate frozen foods.

If fish, meat and poultry are to be defrosted using the fan only setting, where possible it is recommended that the food should be small & thin.

The items should be placed so that the maximum amount of surface area is exposed to the circulating air, and that they are turned regularly to ensure even defrosting.

Larger cuts of meat and poultry may be defrosted by using the fan only setting up to a maximum weight of 2 kg (4lb 8oz).

It is important to wash both meat and poultry and cooking utensils immediately after defrosting and before cooking. Food should be cooked immediately after defrosting.

Oven

Light

It is very important to strictly adhere to the basic principles of food handling and hygiene to prevent the possibility of bacterial growth.

Light Only Setting

When the Oven Temperature & Function Control (B) is turned clockwise to the

Oven

setting, the main oven light only will illuminate and the fan will come on.

Using the Oven for other Functions

“SLOW” Setting

 

 

This is used for slow cooking, keeping food warm and warming plates for short periods.

 

 

 

 

Extra care should be taken when warming bone china, as it may be damaged in a hot

 

 

oven.

 

 

 

 

 

DO NOT place food or plates directly on the oven floor as this could damage both the oven

 

 

lining and the plates which are being warmed.

 

 

 

Advantages of “SLOW” cooking are:

The oven stays cleaner because there is less splashing.

Timing of food is not as critical, so there is less fear of overcooking. Inexpensive joints of meat are tenderised.

Fully loading the oven can be economical.

Cooking times can be extended in some cases by up to 2 hours. The kitchen stays cooler.

Operation:

1.Place the prepared food in the main oven and ensure the door is fully closed.

2.Select 90 (Slow Cooking Temperature) by turning Oven Temperature &

Function Control (B) clockwise ensuring the oven door is fully closed.

Storage and re-heatingofood:

1.If food is to be frozen or not used immediately, place it in a clean container and cool as soon as possible.

2.Always thaw frozen food completely in the refrigerator before re-heating.

3.Always reheat food thoroughly and ensure it is piping hot before serving.

4.Only re-heatfoodonce.

Points to consider when preparing food for “SLOW” cooking:

1.Make sure that the dishes to be used will fit into the oven ensuring enough room for air to circulate.

2.All dishes cooked on the slow setting will require a minimum of 6 hours, however, if they are cooked for 1-2hours longer then deterioration in their appearance may be noticed.

3.Never cook joints of meat over 2.7kg (6 lb) or poultry over 2.0kg (4lb 8oz).

We do not recommend that joints of meat or poultry are stuffed before cooking on the slow setting.

4.To seal in the meat juices, always cook meat or poultry at 170oC for 30 minutes before wrapping in foil and placing on a rack over a tin (to allow good air circulation) before turning the control to the slow setting and cooking immediately.

5.Always ensure that joints of pork and poultry are thoroughly cooked by checking with a meat thermometer before serving.

6.Always thaw frozen foods completely before cooking. We do not recommend placing frozen food in the oven to cook.

7.Always bring soups, liquids and casseroles to the boil before placing in the oven.

8.Ensure that casserole dishes have a good seal (not airtight) and cover to the top with foil to prevent loss of moisture.

9.Ensure that fruit and vegetables are cut into even sized small pieces to cook properly.

10.Always adjust seasoning before serving.

11.If using dried red kidney beans it is important that the beans are soaked and then boiled for a minimum of 10 minutes before using in any dish to destroy any toxins.

12.When cooking fish or egg dishes it may be necessary to check during cooking to avoid overcooking.

IF USING ALUMINIUM FOIL

1.Never allow foil to touch sides of oven.

2.Never cover interior with foil.

3.Never cover shelves with foil.

The most accurate method of testing the readiness of joints of meat or whole poultry is to insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of a joint of meat, or the thickest part of poultry thighs, during the cooking period. The meat thermometer will indicate when the required internal temperature has been reached.

Cooking Result Not Satisfactory?

GRILL

Uneven cooking front to back

Ensure that the grill pan is positioned centrally below

 

the grill element.

Fat splattering

Ensure that the grill pan is not lined with foil.

 

Ensure that the grill setting control (A) is not set too high.

BAKING

Uneven rising of cakes

Ensure that the oven shelves are level.

Sinking of cakes

The following may cause cakes to sink:

 

1. Pre-heatingof fan ovens – not always necessary.

 

2. Cooking at too high a temperature – reduce standard

 

temperatures by 25oC for fan ovens.

 

3. Using normal creaming method with a soft margarine.

 

If using soft margarine, use an all in one method

 

instead of the traditional creaming of the margarine

 

and sugar. Remember when using a food mixer or

 

processor not to over-creamsoft margarine.

Over/undercooking

Refer to the cooking times and temperatures given in the

 

Oven Temperature Charts provided, however, it may be

 

necessary to increase or decrease temperatures by 10°C

 

to suit personal taste.

 

Do not use utensils greater than 56mm (2l4'') in height for

 

roasting.

Care and Cleaning

Warning: Before cleaning, please ensure that the electricity supply to the appliance is switched off and the appliance is fully cold.

1. “CREDACLEAN” OVEN LINERS

(a) How "Credaclean" works.

TOP OVEN SIDE LINERS

MAIN OVEN SIDE LINERS

AND REAR PANEL

The surfaces of the "Credaclean" oven liners are treated with a special vitreous enamel which absorbs cooking soils.

At temperatures of 220°C (425°F) or above, the special surface enables these soils to be slowly destroyed.

The higher the temperature the more effective it is.

(b) Cleaning.

In most cases normal cooking operations at 220°C (425°F) will permit this cleaning operation to proceed during cooking. However if higher cooking temperatures are not used regularly, it may be necessary, in order to prevent heavy soiling, to run the ovens without shelves or meat pan, at a maximum setting for a couple of hours.

It should not normally be necessary to clean the "Credaclean" panels with water. If the user feels it is desirable to do so, wipe them over with a clean, soapy cloth, followed by a wipe with a clean damp cloth.

DO NOT use biological washing powder, harsh abrasives or chemical oven cleaners of any kind as this could damage the “Credaclean” oven liners.

To prevent stains from being burnt on to the grill pan, food support and rod shelf, always wash immediately after use in hot soapy water.

Use a well soaped fine steel wool soap pad to remove stubborn stains from the rod shelves, grill pan, meat pan and the base of the oven.

DO NOT use aerosol cleaners on this oven as they could adversely affect the fan motor unit, and cannot be wiped off the fan blade.

(c) Removable Grill Roof Panel (not all models).

Pull grill roof panel out slowly, being careful not to damage the elements. Clean using a damp soapy cloth, if stubborn stains remain gently clean with a well soaped fine steel wool soap pad and soapy water, and then wipe over with a damp cloth.

DO NOT use metal cleaning utensils, wire wool or proprietary oven cleaners on the grill element mesh.

TRIMS

(a) Control Panel

Regularly wipe with a clean, damp cloth and polish with a clean, dry cloth.

(b) Trims

It is advisable to clean the trims regularly to prevent any build up of soiling which may detract from the appearance of the cooker. The recommended method of cleaning is to wipe over the trims with a clean, soft cloth wrung out in hot water, or mild non abrasive cleaner. (If in doubt try the cleaner on a small area of trim which is not noticeable in normal use), then after wiping with a cloth wrung out in clear water, dry with a clean, soft cloth.

(c) Inner Door Panels & Glass

Open the door fully. The glass panel may now be washed. Stubborn stains can be removed by using a well soaped, fine steel wool soap pad.

DO NOT use scouring pads, or abrasive powder, which will scratch the glass.

4. REPLACEMENT OF THE OVEN LAMP

Warning: Before removing lamp lens, please ensure that the electricity supply to the appliance is switched off and the appliance is fully cold.

Open the oven door and remove the oven shelves. Using a thick cloth, grip the lamp lens, unscrew anticlockwise and remove the lens.

Carefully unscrew the bulb anti-clockwise.Fit replacement bulb (15W 300°C SES). Fit replacement bulb and refit lens.

Installation

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS

For your own safety, we recommend that your cooker is installed by a competent person such as one who is registered with NICEIC (National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting). The cooker should be installed in

accordance with the latest edition of the IEE Regulations.

Warning: This appliance must be earthed.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS

The installer must check that the voltage shown at the rating plate corresponds with the house electricity supply.

The oven must be supplied via a suitable double pole isolating switch, having a contact separation of at least 3mm in all poles placed in a readily accessible position adjacent to the unit.

If the oven is to be wired into a connector unit, this may be positioned behind the oven providing the following requirements are met:

i)The connector unit must not project from the wall more than 25mm.

ii)The top of the connector must not be more than 350mm above the base of the oven recess.

Remove the terminal cover at the rear base of the oven. Pass the cable through the cable clamp and connect to the appropriate terminals provided.

Allow sufficient cable so that the oven can be set down on the floor whilst still connected.

Tighten the screws on the cable clamp and replace the terminal cover. Make main connections.

This appliance conforms to B.S. EN 55014 regarding suppression of Radio and Television reception interference.

Where a double oven is used, a 20 amp Double Pole control switch should be used to feed the unit using a suitable rated cable.

Where a hob is fitted adjacent to an oven, a 45 amp Double Pole control switch should be used to feed both units via separate suitably rated cables.

We recommend a minimum of 4mm2 PVC insulated twin and earth cable conforming to B.S. 6004 for connection of each appliance.

This appliance must not be installed over any other appliance that generates heat.

Note: Due to many different types of installation, a mains cable is not supplied with this product. The installer will fit the correct type and length of cable

25

Installation

IMPORTANT

It is essential that the lower cupboard is constructed in the manner illustrated i.e. having side, back, and roof panels so joined as to provide no apertures which could permit access to the oven unit when installed.

1. GENERAL

The appliance is designed for mounting at a safe level into an oven housing which must be secured to the backing wall.

2.VENTILATION

a.The oven housing unit cabinet dimensions must comply with fig. 4.

b.An air gap of 50mm minimum must be provided at the rear of any top or bottom cupboards or shelves (see fig. 1).

c.It is necessary that the cabinets are provided with unobstructed ventilation, i.e. from adjacent cabinetry. This can be done by either raising the base of the cabinets using the adjusting feet (or spacers) or alternatively by providing a slot in the cabinet plinth to the dimensions in fig. 1.

d.The air gap at rear allows the warmed air to pass out of the inner cabinet space. Where it is intended to fit cupboards above the oven unit to ceiling height, it is essential that the warmed air is exhausted through the front of the cabinet (see fig. 1).

e.If an oven unit is installed adjacent to a tall cabinet, steam escaping from the oven when the door is opened could condense on and maybe stain the adjacent surface. To prevent permanent staining, the adjacent surface should be made of a material that is heat resisting and easy to clean. Adjacent tall cabinets should not be deeper than the oven housing cabinet.

3.FINAL INSTALLATION

a.Using a spirit level, check that the housing cabinet is level from side to side and from front to back in its installed position.

b.Correct any unevenness by placing spacers under the bottom of the cabinet. Make sure that the cabinet rests firmly on the floor without rocking.

c.Before the oven is fitted, the cabinet must be firmly secured to the backing wall for stability.

d.The oven unit should now be lifted (this is a two person lift) into the cabinet and pushed fully home.

e.Finally, the oven is secured to the cabinet by means of the four Pozi Wash Head screws - two through each side trim.

f.Remove all packaging material from the grill and oven interior.
